Just took delivery of a Tiguan R-line and loving it so far.

Just one question for the time being...steering wheel heats up even though the heated steering wheel option is off.

Am I missing something?

Does the display actually say heated steering off or are you looking at the three dots?
If the buttons cycle through the same way as on the Elegance (different steering wheel buttons) I’d say you could be misreading the display. I first thought they were showing off when it was on.

You make a valid point. I may be misreading it but when I cycle the option, it switches to on, then off...therefore assuming it was off to begin with?

Attached pic is only one I have of the steering wheel at this hour.

The heater has three heat settings, if it's off and you press the button it goes to full on, press again and it goes to mid setting, press yet again and it goes to low setting, then press one more time to go to off. At least that's how mine works.

🤦‍♂️ explains a lot. Thank you for clarifying.

I'm getting used to both heater slider controls and learning to live with steering wheel controls ( why did VW go this way) but regularly catch steering wheel heat switch...

Yeah the heated wheel is the only mis-press I have. Got used to the rest of it and not a real problem, just 'different'
